So yeah, the craft fair that I was a part of was ok. I made about $120.00. I have a ton of tooth fairy pillows left. Tomorrow I’ll be snapping pics and putting them up on my Etsy shop. I still can’t believe people bought my stuff. It’s hysterically funny to me.
In one of those, “Oh crap I hope they don’t get home and take a closer look at what they bought!”
Then Rational Jen swoops in, ‘Hey, they only paid $5.00 for it, it’s not like they were expecting Martha Stewart. You even handed out cards to this website and it’s named “BADLYCRAFTED. Think on that one Stoopy Jen.”
Stoopy Jen is sitting here, mouth hanging open with a vacant look on her/my face. It’s how I roll lately.
Seriously, a few days ago I was sitting up in bed (G was over at his computer in our room and Than was in his own room asleep), playing “Draw Something” on my Kindle Fire. Next thing I know I’m jerking myself awake as I’m about to tip over. Yes, I fell asleep sitting up with the KF on my lap, stylus in hand and I was DROOLING.
DROOLING? Yeah, yeah, tmi. But it’s me and it’s this blog so there’s never really such a thing as “tmi” here. We’re all friends, right?
I mistakenly told G, ‘OMGOSH George, first…I just fell asleep sitting up, and then I almost fell off the bed!!” He replied, “Did you know you were drooling, too?”
Me: “Isn’t that something you should wake me up for? I mean dang, at least push my forehead back so I fall straight back on my pillow and sleep.
G: “As if you ever fell in a straight line in your entire life.”
He has a point. But don’t tell him I said that.
I’ve been starting/finishing projects lately but mostly just starting projects. I actually did crochet a baby blanket for a friend who had a sweet baby girl a few weeks back. Here’s a pic of that:
It’s pretty, girlie and soft, soft, soft! I’m actually happy with this one. That’s a record of 1 in a row.
I also did a project I found on Pinterest. You take Elmer’s glue and food coloring and paint it on glass. It goes on really thick and gooey, but when it dries it’s cool looking:
Start to finish:
No I have no idea about measurements as I don’t measure. Yes I didn’t mix really well and have streaky red bits in it. And yes even though close up it’s not perfect, I’m still perfectly happy with it. Just know if you paint it on really thick it’s going to slide down the sides into a big pile of goo. I ended up turning it upside down in my kitchen sink – easier clean up that way.
I’m also starting signage for a local charity. I don’t have any pics of that yet. I’ll put it up when I get ‘em.
On the home front, Than the Man and I are searching to buy a baby cockatiel. G’s just letting us run wild on this. We have a budget of zero dollars and zero cents. (sigh) Trying to work bartering out but not sure how that’ll go. Doesn’t hurt to ask, eh? We found that some of our favorite people from a pet shop that closed last year started up a new shop in Mesa. The new shop is AWESOME. Clean place, pet habitats are clean and the pets are extremely well cared for. We can afford the pet once it’s in the house – it’s that start up costs that are crazy. “WE” are learning “fiscal responsibility”. By “WE” I mean Than.
The only problem with this is that he talks about nothing else and doesn’t stop talking. All.day.long. “Hi, cockatiel Mommy, cockatiel. How cockatiel did cockatiel you cockatiel sleep cockatiel?
Mr. SubliminalFail, thy name is Than.
